Origin of Suqin Village
In the history of Wuchi, there was a man who had been enshrined in the Three-character Classic and the seal of the Six Kingdoms. He was the famous Su Qin. Su Qin was born in Su Qin Village, Zhang Cun Town, Muchi County.
Suqin Village is located 25 miles southwest of Wuchi County. Due to the character of Suqin Jizi, this village was originally called Jizi Village. It was changed to Suqin Village in the early years of the Republic of China.
With his parents, Su Qin moved to Chengxuanli, Luoyang, which is now the east of Luoyang. He once studied under Guiguzi with Sun Yi, Pang Juan, and Zhang Yi. After the expiry of the period, Su Qin lobbied around with no success. When he returned home, he was ridiculed by his friends, relatives, and neighbors, and he advised him to "rule the industry and strengthen the industry and commerce". However, Su Qin believes that the root cause of his failure is that his knowledge is not enough to fulfill the task. From then on, he studied the book with anger and read it late at night. When he was so tired that he couldn't even open his eyes, he stabbed his thigh with an awl. The phrase "Xi Suqin, Cone Spike" in the "Three Character Classic" is for this reason.
Su Qin Village has a history of more than 2,000 years. At present, there are more than 13 buildings in the Ming and Qing dynasties such as the well-preserved Wu'an Pavilion, and more than 60 traditional buildings. The overall structure of the village's traditional villages is well preserved, and the road direction remains basically the same. The original layout of the ancient village has been preserved.
Su Qin's profile
The Suqin Academy, located at the east end of Suqin Village, was rebuilt in the early 1940s and changed to village elementary school after liberation. There are 3 bodhisattva halls and 6 academies. The main building of the academy is basically intact.
The Li's Ancestral House is a building of the Qing Dynasty. Two monuments are embedded in the wall of the ancestral hall, detailing the development history and genealogy of the Li clan in Suqin Village.
Wenwu Pavilion, the villagers commonly known as "loft", formerly known as Dongzha Pavilion. When the villagers of Qing Dynasty Yongzheng ten years raised funds to rebuild, the second floor was renamed Wenwu Pavilion.
The earthen owl at the south of Long'er Temple looks like a dragon. The location of the temple is exactly on the ear of the dragon. Therefore, it is named Long'er Temple, also known as "Su Qin Village Shengshou Courtyard". In order to pass on the culture of Long'er Temple, there must be a big play during the annual conference on the 25th day of the first lunar calendar.
In recent years, Zhangcun Town has always regarded improving rural human settlements and constructing beautiful countryside as important starting points for promoting new rural construction. Invested 1 million yuan to carry out green planting and upgrading on both sides of Zhangcun to Sanhua Gully Road and Longer Temple Road. In accordance with the "four seasons evergreen along the highway, three seasons have flowers" standard, more than 3 million yuan was invested to widen 5 meters on each side of the Yingzhang Highway and the Yingzhang Expressway, and 7.2 kilometers of high-standard greenery provided good travel for the people along the highway And living environment.
